New Linux Video: Kazam Screencaster Tool Review

Unlike most screen recording programs for Linux, Kazam is uber with its editing and exporting options (in a clean, nice graphical user interface) and works with a standard, easy-to-edit format, but it is not without it’s downsides.

Onwards to my full text review on OMG! Ubuntu!

    Hey, thanks for the heads-up on this one. I’ve been searching for a good way of recording test gameplay from my Blender-based game project and until I tested Kazam I’ve used Fraps under Windows, because that was the only thing that could record OpenGL stuff without trouble. Kazam finally allows me to stay on Linux if I just want to record some test!

    It’s also very fast (compared to gtk-recordmydesktop and the underlying stuff) – I can record my screen with full resolution of 1920×1200 with reasonable framerates, and the output files are small too (and of very good quality, exellent for further processing with OpenShot and/or Avidemux). Great tool overall and once again – thank you for showing it to those who somehow never noticed it before. :)

    Great stuff. I made a little tutorial of how to install kazam on Debian Squeeze, which might be an alternative for non-ubuntuists. I’ve not managed to get sound, because of the PulseAudio requirements, but I’ve simply captured using JACK or Audacity and mixed in the sound in kdenlive.
